Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Oh, I'll bet THIS is going to be a good time...

Yes folks, it's time for Restoration Weekend 2004! No, not Renaissance Weekend, the nonpartisan gathering for movers and shakers in various fields, but the conservative version, sponsored by the Center for the Study of Popular Culture. Just imagine, you get to swim and golf in Boca Raton and go to banquets where you can watch Ann Coulter push food around her plate while Michelle Malkin preens like a cross-eyed cat. Oh, there'll be speeches and forums and panels galore and get's only 9 days after the election, so you know you'll get to hear lots of wailing and gnashing and bitter recriminations!!!

Just look at the roster of soon-to-be sore losers:

Senator Zell Miller

Senator Mitch McConnell

Senator Jeff Sessions

Senator Lindsey Graham

Kelsey Grammer

Victor Davis Hanson

Dick Morris

General Thomas McInerney

Marc Andreessen

Ann Coulter

Michael Barone

Bill Kristol

Tammy Bruce

Robert Davi

John Bryant

Lew Rockwell

Jerry Taylor

Phyllis Chesler

Michelle Malkin

Daniel Pipes

Chris DeMuth

David Horowitz

Charlie Black

Steve Emerson

Christopher Hitchens

R. James Woolsey

Congressman John Doolittle

Bob Barr

But that gets me thinking...the Righties must be mighty confident in the election results. I mean, if there were to be a recount or any other post-election wackiness, it wouldn't make sense for all of Bush's surrogates to be holed up at a resort instead of appearing on Meet the Press et al. What do they know???

(Just for shits and giggles, here's the text of Paul "Lickspittle" Wolfowitz's address to the Kool-Aid Gang in 2002.)
